Behringer X32 Compact price drop?
« on: October 10, 2013, 04:37:49 pm »

I'm seeing the X32 Compact for $1699 (normally $2499) at many of the larger retailers.  I'm not planning on purchasing one but if someone else is, now looks like a good time.

Any idea why the large price drop all of a sudden?

Really any one of a number of possible reasons.

Maybe supply caught up with demand and there is now a surplus of the units sitting on shelves. Maybe there's a X32.1 or something coming out in a few months that will replace or supplement this unit. Who knows.

2) Do it over until you do it right

probably more to do with price of compact vs regular.

It's a one day sale. I'm on my way to pick one up in an hour.

I think the same. The X32 "Compact" was not that cheaper, not that smaller, not that lighter than the "not compact".

I think they also are suffering from the fact that having announced it, they took a long time in getting it out for sale.  It's allowed other manufacturers, particularly Soundcraft and Allen & Heath, time to get their response products to market.  At PLASA, I looked at both the Soundcraft SI and the A&H QU16, and both are good at decent price points.  From a personal point of view, I think both are easier to use than the X32 and that counts for a lot at the budget end of the market.

Apparently not one day exactly.  Online retailers still have them at $1699.

I wish I had the money to go buy one.... That's a really good price for that board; I don't think I'd miss the 8 faders from the full size one as much as I'd miss the extra money.  ;D

You'd be missing the AUX Encoders and the User Defined Encoders, too.  No big deal.  I like Sends on Faders also, and you still have the User Defined Buttons.  We recently added the Compact to the stable.  It's a nice, full-featured complement to its big brother.

I missed they dropped those. I personally use the UDE's quite frequently to adjust delay and decay parameters without jumping into the effects rack. I can live without the aux assignments though it can be handy to tweak multiple effects sends on one channel AT&T he same time.
